This feature adds new global keywords to provide access to a SAML user's attributes after being authenticated via the SAML Account Manager.

The new keywords available are:

  • %globals_session_saml_attributes% : prints a JSON string representation of all attributes of the logged-in SAML user.
  • %globals_session_saml_attributes_XX_0% : prints a specified attribute (XX). The index can be set to specify the values to print in an array. In this example, only the first value in the array will be displayed.

Please note that a SAML user's attributes are only stored temporarily for a session. As such, these keywords are only available for the session. Permanent storage can be made available using triggers to access attributes and store them in metadata.

SAML Account Manager: New Option to Randomise User Password (#6908)

A new option has been added to the SAML Account Manager to randomise the password of a SAML user. This means that when this option is enabled, a SAML user will no longer be able to log into the system using their standard Matrix username and password. The user will need to use their SAML details to access the system.

By default, this option is disabled.

Morph Asset Type Trigger Action (#6910)

A new trigger action has been added to allow an asset to morph to a new asset type. Currently, this action only supports User and File type assets.

Only  Under Construction assets can be morphed.
